Barcelona could join Ligue 1 after independence, says mayor Xavier Trias

The mayor of the city has accepted that Catalunya does not have enough good teams to form its own competition, so the club would have to play in either France or Spain (Barcelona, French Ligue 1, Spanish Primera Division)

hahahahhaa, really... catalans are sooo damn ridiculous. They're as naive and stupid like the Quebecois/the scots if they think that they can resolve their problems by breaking off the country.

Fuck off please tell me what makes your country any better or more adapt than ours.

What's ridiculous is that Westminster has been downplaying how much oil Scotland has for decades and they know that if they lose them there fucked.

Try and sort out your own countries problems before hating on others.

Please scotland won't survive by itself, perhaps in the short term it will do fine, but in the long-term the scots would be headed for disaster. The would be government is a bunch of stooges. You plan to split and keep the pound? aint gonna happen.

France, Spain and many other countries won't allow you to join the Euro because they would be approving of separtists movements and they have their own problems with that.

If Barca join the French leagues, they're idiots and will be the laughing stock of world football. The French league is barely the 5th best league in Europe.

Would be stupid to leave a league you have so much history in... not to mention all the other factors.

Don't really see this happening, to be honest. What would they gain from joining Ligue 1? They'd actually lose a lot of money because the French league isn't that popular, so TV rights money would dry up.

Especially when it comes to El Clasico.

not just that either in spain they have control of the tv sponsors in that each club has to do the tv coverage themselves and not just as a whole league like the premiership and well all the other leagues in europe like Ligue 1 so they would be stuck with the tv sponsors Ligue 1 has and would have and would be getting the same amount as a newly promoted side would in Ligue 1.

also if this did go through and they joined that ligue god help barcelona its already reported they have a huge debt hanging over their head which only the huge individual tv rights they get can keep at bay so if that disappeared could see barcelona having to sell their big names.

No one will watch La Liga if this happens which I think is very unlikely
